SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
The Dana Point 5th Marine Regiment Support Group will be hosting their annual comedy show fundraiser, Laughs for Leathernecks, on Monday, Sept. 28 at the Irvine Improv, 31 Fortune Drive, Suite 216 at the Irvine Spectrum. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $35, including dinner and the show. Proceeds will be used to provide support and outreach to Camp Pendleton’s Fighting Fifth Marines and their families. Attendees are encouraged to sponsor attendance to the show for Marines and their spouses by purchasing extra tickets for them.
The event, which sold out last year, will also include a silent auction and door prizes.
The comedy lineup includes Rita Rudner (Las Vegas, “The Tonight Show”), James P. Connolly (Comedy Central, Sirius Radio), Danny Villalpando (“NBC’s Friday Night,” The Latino Laugh Festival, Comedy Central), Laura Hayden (comedian, doctor, shoe fanatic, shenanigator) and Tom Riehl (Orange County-based comedian, “Food Rules” and the Laff Pack).
